Radio Sunpig 2009: Thicker Ice

Reading about playlists this afternoon reminded me that I still hadn’t posted Radio Sunpig 2009…and it’s August of 2010 already. (Nothing new there, then.) But I can honestly say that I finalized the playlist itself at the beginning of January, and the artwork shortly thereafter. I even issued a couple of prototype CDs at the end of February, but it never went to a full production run (of the usual 7 copies). Oh well.

Radio Sunpig 2009 is subtitled “Thicker Ice” because it felt like in 2009 the Sutherland household was on a more solid footing than in 2008. It still had plenty of ups and downs, but the ups were upper and the downs were less down. A good foundation for 2010. And musically, it saw me start going out to live gigs again. Which is awesome. And any year in which I can get to see the Tragically Hip twice in the space of a single week has got a hell of a lot going for it.
